There was a comment left on one of the first tornado blog posts I did offering me the opportunity to audio record my story. I contacted Maggie, who interviews the people behind news stories and posts them on the internet radio site "radio4all" so they can be accessed by anyone at anytime, free of charge. Based out of Hamilton, she had already interviewed Tom Jasper from the ODRAP/ Goderich Tornado Disaster Relief Fund, Mary from St Vincent de Paul, and Kelly from the Goderich Grill. I agreed to do an interview with her, although I must say, I was quite nervous about it.
Thankfully it was taped, not live, so she could edit parts of it.
The interview is just over 30 mins long. If you would like to hear it, click here and scroll down to download "Melissa's story".
If you get to the radio4all.net homepage, just type "Goderich" into the search bar.
Yesterday various residents of Goderich, including myself, spoke with a reporter from London Free Press. You can view that article here. Be sure to watch the video too.
Yesterday I received a message from a woman I had just recently met, who understands completely what its like to be in my shoes. She said "We don't work through these types of events, we learn to incorporate them into our lives in ways that help us make sense of what has happened so that we can move on".
